on thursday with the other actors involved here. as far as why i believe it was handled wrong by the fbi, first of all to have something like this a cyber harassment case rise to the level of an fbi investigation. when it reached the cia director, have the fbi investigate the director of of the cia and the president or the attorney general not be notified of it is a dereliction of duty. the president if he was not told should have been told and that to me was somebody really dropping the ball. the other thing makes the whole thing implausible is you have a four, five, six-month investigation whatever it was. nothing comes out, nothing is disclosed. suddenly on election night the fbi announces the investigation is over and they tell general clapper. the next day the white house finds out about it, the next day general petraeus submits his resignation. friday the president accepts the resignation. we find yesterday the fbi raiding the home of paula broadwell. then we find out general allen has been involved in emails with joe kelley, so you have like four or five different events happening

. senator feinstein says she plans to investigate why the fbi kept relevant lawmakers in the dark and plained that the fbi wasn't looking for lusty emails between a four-star general and his biographer, they were trying, instead, to find out why broadwell was harassing another woman, whose identity is unknown. >> the worry is yes and yes. we received no advance notice. it was like a lightning bolt. the way i found out, i came back to washington thursday night. friday morning, the staff director told me, there were a number of calls from press about this. i called david petraeus. >> director petraeus resigned less than a week before he was scheduled to testify before congress about the cia's response to the deadly 9/11 raid on the american consulate in benghazi. at this point, he is not expected to appear anymore. although, the vice chairman of the senate committee says petraeus might not keep quiet forever. >> he's a very capable dupe morel, mike morel, is going to be testifying next thursday. that's fine because he certainly was there when -- when all of decisions were made, rela
